Style Name: H180X
Best 720p full 3D projector on the market. I purchased this about 6 months ago after researching projectors for at least 3 months. I cannot be happier with this purchase. No problems. Easy to setup and the picture quality is better than many of the 1080p projectors I looked at. The colors pop out during movies or when kids play video games and the contrast is excellent. People have a lot of reasons why they like or dislike products but with a projector, it really comes down to only one thing, the picture quality. The Optoma h180x is only 720p but that doesn't matter because what it may lack minimally in resolution, it makes up for in every other category: I can turn this puppy on in the middle of the day with windows open because of its 3000 lumen bright image, realistic colors, deep blacks with its high contrast, FULL 3D (not 3D ready like most scams) 2 m/s response time for fast video (sports, videogames, action movies) shorter throw for a 300" image, and the thing is really quiet for a projector. It must have a nice processor in it, to do all of this in such high quality. Buy it, you'll love it and you will love that you didn't pay double for a higher resolution (1080p) projector sacrificing the picture quality.

I've had this projector for about a year now - it replaced a previous projector that lasted me for about 4 years.
This is a great projector (as was my previous one) and it does exactly what I wanted: provide high-def video to my 110" screen.
I have a large DVD library and have no need for blueray (yet), so 720p is just fine and it fills my screen with as much precision and clarity as I could ever want. Seriously, at 110" in a living room, you do not want to see every pore in the skin of your favorite stars.
I haven't tried the 3D portion of this yet, but it's nice to know that it's there.
Noise: When the unit first starts up, it's a bit loud - and boy that made me nervous at first - but within a minute or two it settles in and is barely noticeable. Now, after having it about one year, I have recently noticed that the startup noise is a little louder and lasts a little longer. This is only a problem when I try to watch something immediately after turning it on. But within 3 minutes or so, the noise level is back down to where it should be. I watch in a dark room so I have the brightness settings at medium (econo mode?).

very impressive picture. I mounted it from the ceiling 12 feet back and it projects a excellent 100" picture. The manual zoom and focus along with the remote keystone and lens shift allowed me to center the image perfectly. It looks awesome when the room is dark but still looks pretty good with the lights on while we're playing pool. Its very quiet and the audio is adequate on its own but I'm planning on adding speaker to enhance that.

We sold our house and I had to include the projector so I purchased this to swap out for my Panasonic AE4000u. The Panasonic is probably 3ish years old at this point, but retailed for $2500. I will say that in all honesty if I had to argue the jump up to the Panny at this price I dont think I could. I was worried that swapping it out would be a big downgrade, but the picture is actually quite excellent. It doesn't have as many tuning features or controls, but at 1/4 the cost of the Panasonic that is a given. The only major issue I have is the remote is not very responsive, it would have been nice if they had put an IR receiver on the bottom of the unit or something.

If you are on a budget build, this is a wonderful buy and you will be very happy. I paired it with a 92" Silver Screen and for $650ish, I dont think you could do better.

Pros:
1. The image quality is excellent! Small text can be read easily.
2. Color contrast. Compared to my laptop screen, this projector has MUCH brighter colors and more contrast.
3. Brightness. All I have to do is close the blinds and turn off the lights and I can watch movies during the day.
4. Sound level. This projector is very quiet, even on high altitude mode, which turns the fan speed up.
5. The image can be shot from the floor or the ceiling. I keep the projector under a couch so it can't be seen.
Cons:
1. The zoom is very small, so the projector will have to be placed at a specific distance from the screen for the picture to be the right size. The zoom really doesn't do anything.
2. No horizontal keystone correction. This means that the projector will have to be placed in the center of the room.
3. Doesn't come with a lens cover to protect the glass. I just made one myself out of cardboard and tape.
4. Doesn't come with a case. But if you're just keeping it in one place, that shouldn't matter.
Overall:

A friend needed a projector for a presentation, and was going to rent one. When I found out the price of rental I came here to Amazon and found this projector at a great price. He was skeptical so I got it well in advance so my friend could still rent if he needed to. Hearing this, the rental guy brought over his $250 per day projector (claimed it cost $5,000).

WOW. Rental guy left with his tail between his legs. The OPOTMA made his "professional model" look like a dim whit. So my pal rented mine for $500 a week (didn't tell him the cost--- which is lower now than when I bought it) and he later bought his own. Just as an experiment, he brought his over and we put them in tandem, (one on top of the other and used the keystone adjustment) on the high lux screen. After some futzing with the alignment which was all with the remotes, WOW WOW WOW! In shadowed daylight, it was very bright. After the experiment, we did a garden party home cinema fete) and from a BluRay player, the quality was amazing. Did the 7 speaker surround and had the audience cheering. Unfortunately the film wasn't that good but the outdoor cinema was GREAT.
